Rumpelstiltskin is a character the we love from the show Once Upon a Time, but the original story isn’t commonly consumed. We have split our analysis once more into two parts. This first one covers narcissism and persona while part 2 will focus solely on the Trickster archetype.
The story is read from 6:20 – 13:15
Trigger warning for sexual abuse from 49:50 – 52:10
We’ll be reading from Household Tales by Brothers Grimm
Adina also recommends:
The Complete Grimm’s Fairy Tales (Pantheon Fairy Tale And Folklore Library). If attempting to purchase this, be sure it says, “with Padraic Colum (intro) and Joseph Campbell (commentary) and James Scharl (illustr)”. Amazon considers all versions to be the same book, so you could accidentally buy a copy without those key elements.
Our intro/outro music is from Antoni Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, performed by John Harrison with the Wichita State University Chamber Players. You can find the original at freemusicarchive.org
